Help with kidney cancer battle

Update posted by christopher rivett On Jul 17, 2017

Finally got my date for surgery. It's on 8-15. Still real nervous, and just praying that my doctor gets it all. My surgeon is Jason Cook. Supposed to be the best. I still get nervous thinking about. Still wondering how I am going to pay the 20% that my insurance don't. Praying that even if someone can't donate, Which I know not everyone can. Just hoping that this post would at least be shared. Thank you and God bless.

Been starting to feel more pain in my right side where the cancer is. Gets me nervous, trying to keep myself together while my wife is in ICU. Not sure if putting surgery and treatment off for six weeks was wise or not, but would rather my wife be home first before I start going through it. Have seen other family members go through different cancers and will be glad when mine is finally started treatment begins. Will post more updates the closer it gets. Just continuing to stressed over this and the finances involved. I know God is by our side, but I still am scared, haven't really said that before but I am. Anyway, thank you for your prayers and any help. God bless.

Found out the name of my cancer is " Renal cell carcinoma clear cell stage 2 kidney cancer. Sounds long but hopefully has not spread. I am nervous waiting for the surgery but I know it will be in God's hands and he will see me through. Still have to come up with 20% of my medical costs and treatments for everything. Really got me nervous. Thx for any help in donating or spreading the word. God bless

Well, went to Urologist, he told me the medical name of my cancer, but I can't remember it all. Basically what I have doubles in size every few months so it's good it was caught early. Probably started growing few months ago. We got to talking about my wife Stac and he said that I could wait on my surgery till she gets little better, but not too long. They are gonna schedule my surgery for around the end of July, he didn't really want to wait longer than that. He said even if it grows a little more, which it might have already anyway, he says it should be alright. Plan right now is to do a partial. When he gets in there then he will know more. But a lot of y'all probably saying don't wait, but he says it should be ok, plus give me a chance to get her further along. He is supposed to be one of the best. Will that's all I know for now.

Have been feeling tired and have pains on my right side where the cancer is. Just trying to stay strong, especially while my wife is in ICU fighting her own fight. I will be seeing another cancer doc this friday to talk about meds and surgery. Still nervous. Everybody says it will be better . I'm praying it is. Thank you and God bless

I finally got my appt for next Friday for the Urologist. He will decide then on the treatment course with surgery band whatever meds he thinks I need. Really nervous to go through this. Hopefully he can get it all out and I won't have to do chemo.

Just got back from first visit. Doc was surprised at reading how my cancer was found. I was in a car wreck in April, Totaled mt car. But in the ER, they took pics from head to toe. They were to lazy to find anything, But my regular doctor decided to double-check there work and that's when HE found it. Said if he had not I would never had known until way too late. Anyway, The cancer doctor is sending me to a Urologist doctor to determine if and when he wants to operate. Depending on what he finds, whether it has spread or not, he may remove part or all of my kidney. Then from there I'll find out if I have to do chemo or anything else that goes along with a cancer treatment. Thank you for your help and prayers, God bless. Will update when I know more.
